Back in Totana

We have been away for a few weeks to Portugal and the Cadiz area of Spain for orienteering competitions, and then we were involved with the organisation of our region´s annual orienteering event the ´Costa Calida´.  In the meantime it seems that Spring has now sprung.  The Little Owls and Kestrels are pairing again and the Great Spotted Cuckoos are very, very active now, chasing the magpies away from their nests to lay their eggs.  It will be interesting around June to see how successful they were.

Tomorrow we are riding our bikes up to El Berro to have a meal with a friend before he leaves the campsite there to travel back towards Britain for the summer.  We are going to stay overnight at the campsite in one of their cabins and cycle back on Wednesday.  This is going to be the start of our training to ride the Camino de Santiago in April/May this year.  This is a 800km route from Roncesvalles to Santiago de Compostela.  We hope to be able to complete the route in 12-14 days.
